California Fall - How to Plant the Season in your Garden

This time of year is all about letting go. Of a hot busy summer. Of the goals we set aside this year and the ones we blew out of the water (nice work!). Now it's time to go in. To feast and reflect. And what better way to set the stage than with a garden that reflects that transition we all feel as the sun's angle changes?

In California - where the weather is often an endless summer - it helps give us a sense of place and time to add fall color to the landscape. It can even help with your decorating and table accents! While other plants are frantic about the hot sun in December, your fall species will never lie about what time of year it is. 


If you want to add fall plants to your garden for seasonal interest, consider contrasting a few of different sizes and slightly differently colors. Then spread them out to give an immersive feel. Or just plant a hedge of pomegranate and a single Persimmon accent tree! You can't go wrong with these drought-friendly fruits and their fall flare.

While spring and summer are riotous in color and winter is a land of soft blue-greens, you'll get to be cozy in your autumn sweater, spending an hour or two outside raking leaves. You might be an East coast transplant longing for a taste of home, or you might just be a quiet gardener eager for another season (besides our endless summer) in which to roam.
